Dear Pedantic,
Gustav in a previous strip reminded me of Al Jaffee while this bearded character is reminiscent of Bill Gaines. Of course I could be wrong.

I had a programming professor in college that looked exactly like this Condescending Unix Computer User. Suspenders, smug expression, white beard, and a big belly. His website still has a "100% Microsoft Free" badge in the bottom corner. He knows everything about the x86 there is to know.

I wish I could see a picture of him prior to 1995 as I am curious if he modeled himself after this strip.

I do believe that J_0f_Spades is making a reference to the Dilbert strip where PHB make the same mistake.

Isn't a unix what they call those men who worked for the japanese emperors; the ones who had specific reproductive organs removed?
